This is the Doug Watkins prostate cancer fund. Funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

The TWA family & friends of Doug Watkins are uniting to raise money to help Doug fight against Prostate Cancer. Please show your support!

In February 2012 Doug was hospitalized with a kidney blockage and received a stint to correct the issue. It was soon apparent to the Doctors that there were other issues at hand besides the kidney. After much testing it was determined that Doug was suffering from Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. We were devastated with the diagnosis but hopeful of new treatments approved by the FDA last year. Doug was immediately put on several oral chemotherapy cancer medications, Prosteon, Zytiga and there was/is the possibility of Provenge (new treatment vaccine). Doug is not a candidate for Prostrate surgery so prayer and medications are it. As many of you might know, there is no cure for inoperable stage 4 prostrate cancer However, we remain hopeful that Doug will beat the odds, and are grateful for each day we are given.

Doug is the husband of Peggy and father of 5 great kids. Many of you in our local area will also know Doug is promoter/owner of TriStar Wrestling Alliance (TWA) of over 20 years. Doug has given many many aspiring wrestling hopefuls their start in his facilities and no matter where he or she might end up they always know they will have a home at TWA. Doug is not able to work due to the frequency of treatment needed to fight this and relies solely on his social security retirement to get by. His wife, Peggy, is also unable to work and nearing retirement herself. They have no private insurance plan, only Medicare which covers very little, especially the high tech scans and tests needed to keep on top of this disease. This battle has drained their family both mentally and financially. Doug is in the battle of his life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from him and his family. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
God Bless you.
